I?ve been drawing waterproofing details all week, and it might be affecting me. So, I?ll let you in on a secret. There are certain things that Architects may say or do that are clear warning signs of future water infiltration problems. I think the kids are calling them ?leaks? these days. If you happen to be reviewing the drawings with your Architect and you?re drifting off to sleep as he waxes and wanes and waves his arms around, try to perk up a little if you hear him say one of these things. These are just euphemisms for leaks. So, beware, and, begin the process of lining up expert witnesses.
